I’ve been diving into cryptocurrency and I do not want any of you to miss out on the opportunity to learn more about Bitcoin and crypto for yourselves. I am all in when it comes to building businesses and being the entrepreneur that I am, but when it comes to finances, I am definitely out of my comfort zone. It feels like a movement going on around Bitcoin and crypto, and it would feel so wrong to not bring you, someone, I think you should definitely spend time researching, Michael Saylor. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is accessible to nearly every single person cannot be disregarded out of ignorance. Michael is an MIT graduate and the CEO of Micro-strategy and a self-appointed ambassador for the Bitcoin Movement, whose explanations of what Bitcoin is and why this is so important is one of the best I’ve heard in my own pursuit to better understand cryptocurrency. Listen, research, and do what is best for you, but I urge you to make an informed decision.
